Never Slow Dance with a Zombie - E. Van Lowe
On the day of her Middle School graduation, Margot Jean Johnson wrote a manifesto listing her goals for high school. Being popular, having a boyfriend, and being invited to the best parties are some of the most important things on her list. Now, after four years, as Margot and her best friend, Sybil, start a new school year, she realizes she is running out of time to accomplish her goals – seeing as not even one has been accomplished.Things turn around for Margot after the majority of the students at her school turn into flesh-eating zombies. Margot takes the opportunity to put herself in the leadership role for many of the important school activities like head of the Dance Committee, Head cheerleader, and Captain of the debate team. Finally, her manifesto was going to be completed. But, one thing Margo didn’t expect was the zombies to cause her so much trouble.I’m all for silly fantasy novels. I completely enjoyed YOU ARE SO DEAD TO ME and ZOMBIE QUEEN OF NEWBURY HIGH, but this book was too much. It was not only completely predictable, but also completely ridiculous. For example, in order to fight off the zombies, Principal Taft tells Margot and Sybil to keep a rolled up newspaper with them and hit the zombies on the nose if they get too close. I found myself rolling my eyes for most of the book.I’ve looked at other reviews and see that a few others really enjoyed NEVER SLOW DANCE WITH A ZOMBIE. I guess the saying “different strokes for different folks” holds true. Let me know what you guys think. Am I just weird or did you feel the same way?
